Recently, my sister-in-law sent me these really cute little vases.
I love them. Really, I do. But...
Well, when I looked at them, I thought, "Ooooo! These are nice and simple. I like simple. But, hmmm, I could do something with these. I could make them even prettier!"
I tried to resist. Really, I did. But...
The idea kept nagging at me and I had to give in.
Here's what I did:
I pulled out some Valentine-y paper and laid it out. You know, to see which one called to me.
I picked the one that had shapes already printed out on it. Because I wasn't in the mood to try to cut out "the perfect heart."
Cut out the heart, add Mod Podge generously.
Then, not being able to let a bottle of glitter be alone, I added some of that on top of the Mod Podge. I didn't take a picture of that, though. I wasn't sure I liked it. I may have gone a little too far with the glitter. Maybe not. I don't know. You'll have to use your imagination and decide for yourself. (Or just check out the finished picture below and base your judgement off of that!)
Next, I left the vases to dry, then ate a sandwich and watched Little House on the Prairie before I went to bed. Then I went to bed...and slept very well, thanks!
In the morning, here is what I found!
Yeah, I went a little overboard with the glitter on that middle one. If I did it again, it would get the same glitter treatment as the other two.
Still, I think they turned out pretty cute. Even simple things like to be dressed up every once in a while, right?
Here's what I learned:
- Most things, even if they are already nice and pretty, look better with some pretty paper Mod Podged on.
- Sometimes glitter isn't necessary.
- Glitter is always fun.
- I love Little House on the Prairie.
- You should always make sure there is no wet glue on the rim of your Mod Podge bottle before you close it or you might have a hard time opening the lid that you have glued shut.
